In the heart of Champagne

The experience begins in Champagne with a garden lunch among the vines and the Verzy vegetable garden: the historical cru of Maison Veuve Clicquot. It will then continue in the Crayères, the Unesco World Heritage-listed cellars of House.

That evening, guests will be invited to the Hôtel du Marc, the private residence of Veuve Clicquot, for a gala dinner centred on La Grande Dame. All while sipping on the finest Veuve Clicquot’s cuvées.

Between sky and sea

Next, journey by air before boarding the beautiful sailing ship, Albanus. The boat will be moored on the remote island of Silverskår, where you’ll stay for two nights. Arrive in time for the sun-bathed island’s Midsummer celebrations. You can expect floral garlands, traditional music, a tour of the island and fishing traditions.

Diving into the Åland Vault

Join Cellar Master, Didier Mariotti in his savoir-faire and the art of tasting, and explore some of the House’s rarest vintages. Some of the region’s finest-starred chefs will serve traditional dishes inspired by local gastronomy.

You’ll also be invited to meet the diver – a real treasure hunter – who discovered the wreck in 2010. If you’re an experienced diver, you can also descend with him to see the incredible “Åland Vault,” where the precious bottles are submerged.
